BLAST! FAQ

Q.  Is BLAST! similar to what my kid experiences on the weekends?

A.  No, we have intentionally created an experience that is different from weekends. BLAST! goes deeper into the Bible and allows for more discussion with a smaller leader-child ratio. Kids will enjoy rotations with their group leader, including lesson, music, crafts, games and snack!

Q.  Can I get involved in BLAST! with my child? 

A.  Certainly! Simply contact us and let us know!  

Q.  When is BLAST! offered?   

A.  BLAST! is offered twice a year -- on Wednesday nights in the Spring and the Fall.

Q.  What if I can't afford the supply fee?

A.  If you need financial assistance, please contact GCC Children's Minister.

Q.  Is there anything for me to do while BLAST! is in session?  

A.  GROW Groups are offered in The Gathering. Or, you can serve in BLAST!, PreTeen or High School Ministry. For those attending GROW Groups or serving, childcare is available ($4 per week/child). Pre-registration is required. 

Q.  Do I have to stay on campus? 

A.  No, you may drop your child off at BLAST! and leave campus if you like. We will need your contact information and a completed Medical Release Form in the event your child becomes ill or an emergency arises. Drop-off is NOT permitted for childcare. 

Q.  What about my 5th grader?

A.  That is a great question!  PreTeen Ministry offers a serving opportunity for your 5th/6th grader on Wednesday nights.
